Returned to sender: A reproduction Louis XIV in vintage French Postal Sackcloth

To meet my customers’ budget , this reproduction French Louis XIV was  rewebbed and resprung traditionally. The old degraded foams were completely replaced with a combination of rubberised hair, composite foams and a linen scrim-covered tack roll which was tacked in place for a much improved feel to the seat. The reupholstered fillings and suspension were covered in an F/R barriercloth before an original French postal sackcloth was carefully cut and fitted. Finally trimming the piece with a lush Lemonade velvet piping from Today’s Interiors.
Many thanks to Katy Chaytor-Hill for the rip down

While getting over a rotten head cold/feeling run down.. this became my first reclining armchair, a 12-year old Ligne Roset “Petite Seistre” in Yarwood Hammersmith “moss” Leather with mustard top-stitching. Challenges (apart from top-stitching ) involved sourcing the right colour and sized eyelets for fitting the head rest struts, and sourcing a new feet to replace the plastic ones (especially the one odd shaped one that was fitted as a replacement).

Greaves & Thomas Style Armchair

 

Happy New Year to you all!

Kicking off 2014, I repaired, refurbished and recovered this Greaves and Thomas style armchair for a family in Islington, London. The Fabric is a beautiful design collaboration between  Bute Fabrics & Timorous Beasties in Scotland, called “Ramshead”. I finished it with “Eternal Sunshine” velvet buttons from Elitis .
(Hopefully the youngster whose room this will reside in will be kinder to this than before!)
